Sandbox Writing Challenge #56 — You and Mystery


Where in your life have you experienced true mystery?


Time is wonderful. It helps us ease our pain, some bad memories and our heartache. They are still there, but as the days pass by, the sensation dulls. It’s nature’s way of dealing with them and let us continue with our day to day activities, without mourning. When my father passed away, it was like the world has ended. It made me feel vulnerable and has come face to face with my own mortality. That we all go in the end, no matter what age, how healthy or active we are, whatever our lifestyle. It also made me change my attitude, my belief, my priorities and my way of life. I live each day like it’s the last day on earth. I love with passion, give generously to people who needs them, as well as my time to people that matters, sort my priorities and enjoy life and what it offers.

Life carries on
Live each day like a last day
Love with passion


Not knowing what’s coming next is the story of my life
I like surprises and will usually go with the flow
Of what’s happening with the world, and where it could
Take me and my fancy little me, life’s always a dream
I always find myself with variation of things I do
I’ve got lots of books all over the house, reading them
All at the same time, sometimes got confused with stories
Of the protagonist and the antagonist from one to another
I’ve also got lots of projects in my head, making a detour
From one to another, more of branching out or off
Life is a flow, a simultaneous progression and digression
It’s what makes me – me; like a ball rolling around
Going where the wind takes me, jack of all trades
Master of none, that’s also how I can describe myself
I don’t really conform to what was prescribed, I’m me
I’m rambling now, I know, please say stop before I drift
To a land of make-belief, to my fairy tale place
The mystery island where everything is possible
The novelty of all makes it interesting for me
I can wander for days on end and will carry on
With a knot on my tummy for not saying naught
I’ll let you know what comes at the end of my trip
And so I bid you all farewell and enjoy your week

That photo has been in the water
At first it was such a blur
Poor thing, it’s not submersible
Got no idea, good to be baffled

Been immersed in a large bed of kelp
I don’t think I need some help
Luckily I was able to save it
Didn’t even ruin my outfit

In the middle of it being mutilated
Tried hard to get it out of the mud
Could have migrated somewhere far
Could have been so bizarre

I looked at it in my nonchalant way
At first it was all grey
My God, such a beautiful face
So charming, so full of grace

The melanin still visible, tanned
You could be a model of a famous brand
In this plexus of society, you’re an enigma
God knows how long you’ve been in an aqua

And together with the nickel that I’ve found
I need to find out all the background
In this phase of my life where I’m confused
In my ungainly way, I found some focus
Something to ponder, to solve a mystery
